The Temple Tiger and more Man-Eaters of Kumaon (1954)


SHOW MORE


This is the Jim Corbett's fifth book and third and last about man-eaters. The book contain five stories--- the first one about ''The Temple Tiger'' and last one ''The Talla Des man-eater''. The temple tiger's story is unique in the sense that that tiger (not a man-eater) was never shot by Jim Corbett despite his best attempts. And the story of Talla Des man-eater is also fascinating and different among all Jim Corbett's other man-eating stories. In his own words---''the story of the Talla Des man-eater---which I have refrained from telling until I had written Jungle Lore''--- is considered best among many readers.
Jim Corbett was slayer of man-eating tigers and leopards and was one of most prominent nature and wildlife conservative of his time. Several times he endangered his own life to save the lives of other common people for whom he had a great ambition of sacrifice.
This book is gift to all Corbett Lovers and for whom nature is something of great value as was for Jim Corbett himself in those bygone days.

Subject: jungle lore by JIM CORBETT
very excellent book by "GORA-BABA" , as local people
used to call with honour to Mr. Jim Corbett,.
In this book he by text successfully skeched the scenes of every spot , wherever He met his MAN-EATER tiger. The narration is so clear that while reading we feel that we are also present with him before the "MAN-EATER TIGER "
I WISH EVERYONE SHALL READ & FEEL

I read the first Maneater book by Corbett in Junior High School (1944). It was a favorite of mine and lead me to read about India, and Asia/Africa generally. I am 83 yr. old but still remember how I enjoyed this book. I hope children today can develop a similiar reading appreciation given new technology.
